Adam McKay has managed a coup not seen since Steven Soderbergh managed one in the star-powered “Ocean’s Eleven.”

Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep will lead what appears to be the most star-studded cast since the heist movie.

The director/producer has assembled an ensemble of A-list talent for his Netflix comedy “Don’t Look Up,” a film that already had Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett and Rob Morgan attached.

Jonah Hill, Timothee Chalamet and Himesh Patel are also on the call sheet for the forthcoming film.

Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Matthew Perry and Tomer Sisley have also signed on to make appearances.

McKay has been known to populate his features with pop-culture celebrity cameos.

In his 2015 drama-comedy “The Big Short,” Margot Robbie, chef Anthony Bourdain and Selena Gomez all made appearances.

Since the announcement, “Friends” star Perry shared his excitement for the role in a Tweet that read: “I just booked a movie with Meryl Streep! If you need me, I’ll be on the treadmill for the next six weeks.”

“Don’t Look Up” follows the story of two low-level scientists (played by Lawrence and DiCaprio) who embark on a global media tour to try and warn the world about an impending meteor.

However, they find an unreceptive audience.

This will be DiCaprio and Lawrence’s first Netflix film. The pair are among the few major A-listers to have yet starred in a project for the streaming giant.

“Don’t Look Up” is looking to begin shooting in Boston on 19 November. No release date for the film has been announced.
